MOTORCYCLE enthusiasts will be revved up to the maximum when a popular event rides again this weekend.
The 20th annual Custom Bike and Tattoo Show Family Open Day will take place at Albion Park on Saturday.
Hosted by the Fourth Reich Motorcycle Club, the community event will be conducted at its complex at Croome Lane.
The event will provide motorcycle enthusiasts a rare opportunity to view some of the region's best custom bikes.
A Custom Bike and Tattoo Show spokesman said the event was always a crowd-pleaser.
"The bikes are always of huge interest to fans and never fail to satisfy," he said.
"The burnout demonstration draws spectators from across the complex.
"There's something for everyone with Harley rides, trade stalls, helicopter rides and a variety of entertainment for the kids."
Last year's event raised more than $10,000.
"Proceeds from this year's event will be directed to the Albion Park-based Bendigo Bank Aerial Patrol in recognition of its valuable work for our community," the spokesman said.
The Aerial Patrol was formed in 1957.
Aerial Patrol general manager Harry Mitchell said the organisation's efforts included patrolling beaches daily between mid-December and the end of January, when they were most populated.
Mr Mitchell said the patrol costs $500,000 to run each year, but recently had encountered additional, unexpected expenses.
"We had an early replacement to the engine of our long-haul search and rescue aircraft," he said.
"We had to replace the engine early and hadn't budgeted for the $100,000 cost."
He said the event could have other benefits.
"We hear all the negative things about bikers," Mr Mitchell said.
"The event is very well-run; it's a real family day, a great atmosphere there with adults and children.
"You can meet the guys, look inside the complex and put the positive spin on it."
Gates open at 12pm. Entry is $10 per adult and under-16s free.
